Nusa Penida

Hi Pals,
After we left Ubud we headed for an island called ‘Nusa Penida.’ It’s situated between Bali and Lombok and known for its pristine beach views.

Melbourne: Your guide to museums

Hi Pals,
I was recently looking at some things on maps near my work and noticed that there were a few museums I’d never heard of. It got me thinking, how many museums are in Melbourne?

IMG_1222

Wikipedia lists around 40, Airbnb said 30 but only listed 23 and with TripAdvisor listing 64 – that’s a lot of museums.

What classifies a Museum?
The International Association of Museums defines it as follows:
A non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, and open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of the study, education, and enjoyment, material evidence of people and their environment. 

So with that, here’s a list of Museums in Melbourne that are worth some time.

Ubud-dah add this to your bucket list.

Hello Pals,

I recently went to Ubud for a friends birthday and ‘u bud-dah believe I loved it!’ (sorry.) Ubud was a fantastic time away; fresh food, lovely people and so many sights around that you understand why people want to come and live here. It’s away from Kuta and the party-feel (do the Shaka m8) so although it’s touristy it’s not your typical Australian southern cross tattoo, bin-tang singlet walk around with buckets of alcohol touristy.

Read below on some tips for what to do with your time in Ubud.

Day Trip: Himeji & Kobe.

Hello Pals,
While my friends were off doing something for the day I decided I’d venture off for a day trip to Himeji and Kobe. It’s quite close from Kyoto with a JR pass and to be honest, I didn’t even plan Himeji until I heard it announced over the speaker and decided to continue to Himeji and go to Kobe on the way back.

Here’s how I spent a day trip in Himeji and Kobe.

Monthly Moments: August

Hi Pals,

August was pretty fantastic. I spent my time doing the following;

– Mario kart tour of Tokyo, Japan.

– Having brunch with my Uncle and Aunt.
– Spending the day exploring The NSW Art Gallery and having great coffee & cake with my favourite gal pal!
– Having a Twitter meet up & winning $10 on a scratchy.
